I'm a Versatile Blogger


Thanks to Elle for this "versatile blogger" award.....more bling for my sidebar!

I'm supposed to list seven things about myself, and pass it onto 15 new blog friends. I started listing blogs that I read frequently, and I had to stop, because we'd be here all day. I've shared so much about myself already, but there's always more to tell, so here goes:

1. I tend to drive a wee bit fast, although I didn't get a speeding ticket until about two years ago. I was going 81 mph in a 65. That same weekend I got a parking ticket, and then a letter from EZ Pass saying if I drove that fast thorough the exit again, they would revoke my pass. Turned out to be an expensive weekend.

2. Before having kids I traveled. Outside of the U.S. I've been to Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, France, The Netherlands, Venezuela, Belgium, Mexico, Canada and the Carribean. I would love to go to Japan.

3. I want to do some trail running. I sometimes run on the trails at a nature center near my house, but I don't think that counts.

4. I'm a fan of the Mets, Giants, Islanders, Knicks and SU for college basketball, which can cause some good natured friction within my family at times, since my Dad went to Chapel Hill and he and my brother are obviously big Carolina fans.

4. I played field hockey for four years in high school, was a cheerleader for three, and captain my senior year. Go Falcons!

6. I love libraries. There is one down the street from the house I grew up in, and I was there all the time. When I lived in Rochester, I worked down the street from a library, and would spend my lunch hours there. I love the feeling of finding a little quiet corner and staying there for as long as I can. It's different now with the kids, but they love it too.

7. When I was little my grandparents had a black cat named Molly. I've always suspected that I'm named after the cat, but no one would admit it.

Congrats on your award! I can't believe all that traveling you did!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Shhhhhhh...I drive a wee bit fast too ... don't tell the cops!!

Dude, you ready for LOST tonight? I can barely contain myself -- we better not have another crappy episode like last week!

7 more things about myself? I just aint that interesting -- maybe I'll let my wife make up the list ... that might be very interesting!

I was reading this and thoroughly enjoying it when I saw I get to do it too.
Thanks! I didn't know EZ Pass sent warning letters! I love libraries too! What a great thing that we can borrow books for free!

Tara said...

Hey you! Just playing catch on all of my favorite blogs. I always seem to say this, I'm such a bad blog friend...really i am.

Congrats on your award! I'm so glad that there are others out there that admit to reckless speeding. I'm a very careful driver. I just drive fast. So sorry bout that ticket. Ooopsies.

Oh man, I would love to go to all of those places and then some. Right now I have Italy and Greece on my list.

You played field hockey? THAT I would pay good money to see. :)

Ok. Gonna go eat now. Chat with ya later. How did the MIL's test come out? Ok I hope!

Johann said...

Nice award! That's a cool list. I also love libraries.

Laina said...

Congratulations on your award! You are from Rochester....as in Rochester, NY? That's where I'm from

kristen said...

Gurrrl, you better slow down. Imagine how much your life would suck without an EZ pass!

Cat named molly.....lol....that can't be a coincidence :)

Staci Dombroski said...

Thanks girl!!! Loved your list :)

Suzy said...

Congrats on the award! I loved reading more about you. Thanks for passing it on.

Tricia said...

loved this!

Jill said...

Ooooo, you've been to some cool places to visit. I wish I could have done that before kiddos, now they just suck all my money dry so no funds to do that, especially the college daughter! ha. Loved your list, thanks!

The Diva on a Diet said...

Aw, thanks, Molly! You are so sweet! I love these posts with "seven" things because you always learn so much about the author. I like libraries too! :)

Have a great day and thanks again!!

Julie said...

Hi Molly,
Well, it looks like I am just a wee bit late getting to this post:) I tend to drive fast too!! I sometimes scare the crap out of my hubby:) You were so lucky to travel to so many different countries. I would love to travel to Europe and stay at least one month!

Thanks for the tag...I will think of a few things to post:)

J said...

Thanks for passing this to me! I like reading more about you!

Lisa said...

Thanks for the pass! Sorry I didn't see it earlier - I've hardly read a blog in the past 3 days (so sad).

I'm like you - I'd like to try trail running as well - just need to get my foot better first. I've been to a few of the places you've mentioned, but I'd love to go to Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The history is amazing and I know my husband would love to golf there!

Angie Bishop said...

Great list!!!
Too funny about your suspicions about your name origination.
I love libraries too and could go everyday if I had the time.
So jealous of your travels! I have never left the country. Someday,someday!
